about the book:
Publication Date: February 9, 2012
Chloe Masters’s world changes in a heartbeat and all she did was touch a doorknob.
When she was young Chloe’s mother vanished. Wracked by feelings of abandonment and anger she lost herself traveling with her fathers magic act, where illusions were part of her everyday life. Yet everything changes when they are pursued by a mysterious man in black out to kill her father. Touching a doorknob activates abilities she never knew she had and she finds herself thrust into a world of ancient societies and secrets.
When her father disappears it is a race against time to find answers before she loses whats left of her family. Now Chloe must choose who to trust, the man who will do anything for her or the one she can’t stop thinking about.
Book one of the Doorknob Society series.
Ok. this is one incredible book. I couldn't put it down! At first I thought it was very similar to the story of a certain young wizard...multiple groups of power, each student at a special school had to 'declare' themselves to a group...Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. This book is just amazing!
The characters are unique. They are able to form a very strong emotional bond between them, which is great because when the initially met, they almost hated each other.
Enough about my gushing about this book. My thoughts? Read this book!!! The main character is Chloe Masters. She is the daughter of a blended marriage. Her dad is a former member of The Doorknob Society and her mom, well, you have to read the book to find out where her mom fit into the picture. Chloe and her friends, Edgar, Slade, James and Jess form a strong bond that even the axis of evil could not destroy. They are just teenagers who must fight for what is right, against all odds. Each and every character has a distinct personality, fun, snarky, loveable...but they all mesh together perfectly. This book was so well written, I cannot praise the author enough.
This is a book that will appeal to a wide audience.
I have also had the pleasure of reading book two in the series:
THE IMPOSSIBLE ENGINEERS.
I can only say, book one was fabulous, book two is even better!
Book three, THE MAPMAKERS UNION, is scheduled for release
on July 31st ( I think this is the correct date)

and excerpt from the book
THE DOORKNOB SOCIETY:
I grasped the knob and twisted it. The feelings that ran through me were amazing; the turn of the world beneath my feet, the dance of the planets through the universe and the taste eternity on my lips as it all opened up and poured through me. I pushed the doorway open and the glow of a portal bathed the kitchen in its welcoming light.
“You did it.” Jess seemed impressed and surprised, her eyebrows arching.
“Noooo!” Gran’s scream startled us both as she came hurtling into the room, crashed into the island and crumbled to the floor. Blood poured from a gash along her hairline. She tried hard to get to her feet but it was no use. She had spent all her energy and finally slumped in defeat to the floor.
Her head lolled to the side and with a terror-filled glare that sent chills up my spine, she whispered, “Run.”
